And then there'll be JS 101 on June 20th and all our advanced JS series throughout July and August.
Please spread the word to your female friends, family, and colleagues!

This summer, I got the chance to work with +Sophia Westwood , an intern on the Khan Academy CS team.

You can read this post to find out all about how she got into CS and how she's getting more young whippersnappers like her into CS :-)

Wrote up a new post:

"Referencing DOM from JS: there must be a DRYer, safer way" http://blog.pamelafox.org/2013/06/referencing-dom-from-js-there-must-be.html

Thoughts welcome!

I get a lot of questions about how we deal with Facebook bots and SEO for our single page web apps. My colleague wrote up a post explaining what we use, our Just-in-time Renderer, which delivers the exact same HTML as users would see but without JS.

I'll be speaking at BackBoneConf in Boston, July 31st-Aug 1st.

I imagine you all are bored of my Backbone talks, so for the Backbone conference, I'm not gonna give one! I'm going to talk instead about our approach to UI Components at Coursera - our alternative to the jQuery plugin style. Should be fun!
